If you go shopping at Union Market this weekend, you may see dancers sashaying through the parking lot or twirling on a neighboring roof. Before you join in and start dancing through the aisles yourself, consider leaving things to the professionals.

“We have portable dance floors and we’re up for anything,” says Christine Cox, co-founder and artistic/executive director of Philadelphia’s BalletX, the experimental ballet company behind this weekend’s performances at the marketplace. “We’re up for any unique challenge to show the world what ballet can be.”

Founded in 2005, BalletX was “created as an experiment to play and have fun,” says Cox, who was a company member with the Pennsylvania Ballet at the time. “Now we focus on world-premiere choreography. We’re like an incubator/lab for choreographers to create new works that stem from ballet technique and go into world dance.”
